Question about Protron PLTV-32 Television

4 Answers

My Protron PLTV-3250 TV goes from TV to component 1 by itself!

I just bought this tv like a week ago. After installing it, I sat down and started watching TV. After some 7 minutes, the source option changed the TV from TV Option to Component Option by itself. I'm able to change it back to TV Option again from my control, but it continues changing to Component. I've already tried reseting the TV and changing some options....but it still continues changing by itself. Is there any one that know what the troubleshoot might be? If yes please tell me or I might have to return it. 12/02/06

    my protron 3250 1 1/2 years old , my source changes from component 2 to av1 about every 10 minutes or so, i had the dealer walk through this with me first unplug everything attached they told me never use a power bar wait 30 min then plug everythig back in hold the front button for 15 sec then it should reset itself (in the first 4 months i had it ), it worked for a little while i've called Protron 3 times now my warranty is up so i have this problem. Could this be solved without taking it to a repair shop? thank you for you help

    Hi I too have the magic source changing model ! I think the first problem is shop NBC they are a rip off and won't even try to make things good, they sell a product that they KNOW is defective and don't care.

    Protron has the worst rep of any tv producer that I can see. They need to get some customer reps that can speek english, no offence intended but when you are upset and trying to reasonably fix your problem the last thing you need to do is ask over and over asking them to repeat what was said ! Granted the reps speak better english than I speak their language but there has to be a better way.

    I see others calling for a class action suit and I have to agree, I'm not the suing type but enough is enough.

Possibly the keyboard on the set is cracked or dirty or twisted have you tried to remove the keyboard and checking for bad solder or placed in the set in some way that the keys work without any action from you. Also the switches on the board may be bad replacements can probably be bought a store like RADIO SHACK if it's out of warranty why not give the key board a look?

SOURCE: no power on my protron pltv-3250. any advise?

Check the power supply; look for bad caps with leaking/bulging tops, check to see if you have standby +5vdc at the power supply connector, the front red indicator will not be on if you do not have this +5vdc standby voltage due to shorted out Q7 and ZD4.

Just bought a used Protron PLTV-3250. No owners manual or remote. Could i find them? Do i need them? Thanks a million.....Pam

It is the same as Spectroniq 3250: Manual
http://www.retrevo.com/support/SpectronIQ-PLTV-3250-TVs-manual/id/926dj283/t/2/

Original remote is hard to come by, try EBAY, without orignal remote you may nat be able to access all the on screen setup functions. Watch out for the power supply module to go out on this TV.

Connecting a Protron PLTV 3250 to a home theater system

Standard RCA cables are fine to connect both units. If home theater and tv has Component Video (Green-Red-Blue) connections, you can get better video result.

I had a power supply for my Protron 32 inch TV that was not working. I bought the one on ebay and it stopped working after only three weeks. Ultimately I found a guy who could fix my original power supply for a reasonable price. It's been working for a year now with no problems. I wish I would have tried him first!!!! If anyone is interested his email is [email protected].

No sound

Look in your tv settings menu and see if the speakers are turned off there is an on/off setting in the menu..
